One of the greatest ways to wind up losing the weight you would like to lose is to find a friend who is also looking to lose some weight and start working out together with them. The best part about doing exercises or joining a gym with a friend would be the fact that they're going to be able to help keep you motivated even when you are not in the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Moody_Blues mood] to work out. Something you ought to remember before selecting a partner is to make certain that you both have the same amount of time available each week to work out because if they're not available you may possibly not be motivated to exercise.

You can try '''[[Wikitravel:Search help|searching]]''' for the destination you are interested in.  You may be taken immediately to a guide for that destination, or if there isn't a guide on that destination, you will see a list of articles that mention it.  You can also try searching for the name of a attraction you are looking for, and the search will return a list of relevant articles.

In relation to how you eat your food, you are going to discover that consuming more meals with fewer calories will be your best option. The primary reason this is suggested is mainly because your metabolism runs at a higher rate when you eat food, so eating more often will keep your metabolism running more.

Finding travel information

Travel guides on Wikitravel are mostly arranged geographically. You generally won't find articles on attractions, hotels and restaurants, but you hopefully will find all that information and more in our destination guide articles for countries, cities, and towns.

You can try searching for the destination you are interested in. You may be taken immediately to a guide for that destination, or if there isn't a guide on that destination, you will see a list of articles that mention it. You can also try searching for the name of a attraction you are looking for, and the search will return a list of relevant articles.

Alternatively, you can browse through our geographical hierarchy. You can start at the continents and regions listed on our Main Page, and work your way down through the region, city and district links to the area you are interested in.

After you have found the guide for the area you are interested in, there may still be more information waiting for you to read. We don't cover information on how to get into a country in every destination guide. You won't find visa information for Australia in the Sydney article. So, if you are coming from further afield, you may want to refer to the breadcrumb links at the top of the page, and read the country or region guide, to make sure you have the full picture.

We don't list general travel information in every guide. We have helpful articles on things like money, visas, how to stay safe and how to deal with language barriers in our list of travel topics.

Remember that Wikitravel is an open guide that anyone can edit. Often that means you can get up to the minute information and inside information on attractions and the latest buzz, but sometimes it means that some information can be unverified and unreliable. As with any other guide, you should double check and confirm any information that is critical to the success of your travels.

If you have particular travel questions that aren't covered in a guide, you can ask a docent. A docent is a volunteer guide, and if there is one for your area there will be a link in the sidebar on the left containing their contact information.

For general questions, post a message in our Travellers' pub.

You're free to use the articles in Wikitravel in almost any way, thanks to our copyleft license.

Share your knowledge

This is a reader-created Web site; all the information you see in Wikitravel was contributed by Internet users just like you. We're trying to create, illustrate, and edit a travel guide for the entire world, and we need your help. It's a humongous job. As they say, though, "Many hands make light work;" anything you can do to contribute is appreciated. You don't have to be an "expert" in travel; you just have to be interested enough to get started.

You're always welcome to plunge forward and make changes to any page on the site (including this one). Just click the Edit this page link, and you'll get a Web form that lets you change the contents of the page. Hit Save page, and your version is what's shown on the site. (If you're nervous, feel free to practice on the graffiti wall).

If you find yourself getting more involved, you may want to read our tips for new contributors. Our list of goals and non-goals give a good idea of what we're trying to do with Wikitravel. If you've got some specific info you want to share, we have some guidelines on where you can stick it (pun intended). You can also read our manual of style for more clues as to how to edit and layout guides, but don't worry too much about that stuff if you don't want. Don't forget to describe yourself on your user page to help other contributors to communicate with you (and even to ask for your help sometimes).

There are other ways to help Wikitravel, too. We have a lot of stuff that needs to be done. And if you have special skills or interests, consider joining a related Expedition.

More information

We have quite a bit of help documentation to make reading and editing Wikitravel as easy as we can.

If you have any questions about Wikitravel, please read our FAQ first to see if it's already answered. If not, feel free to ask your question in the travellers' pub, where friendly Wikitravellers will help guide your way.

We can't say how important it is to us that you are reading and contributing on Wikitravel. If you need anything, just ask us (however you can). We want you to enjoy Wikitravel, to find the info you need, and (we hope) to be inspired to share your knowledge with others.
